Crowd trouble in India again |
AFP, New Delhi
The Indian and Pakistani teams walked off New Delhi's Ferozeshah Kotla ground on Sunday following crowd trouble during the sixth and final one-day international.
The game was disrupted after a hail of missiles hit the ground and players from both sides failed to calm the angry crowds.
India were reeling at 94-6 in reply to Pakistan's 303 for 8.
Water bottles, plastic glasses and other missiles rained on to the outfield as India headed for a massive defeat.
Police appealed for calm over loudhailers and Rapid Action Force anti-riot personnel moved in to restore order.
The players returned and play resumed after more than a quarter of an hour.
"Police arrangements were adequate," said Sneh Bansal, secretary of Delhi and District Cricket Association.
"(It was) not anything that could have hurt the players. Just a show of disappointment by a section of the crowd," he said.
Crowd trouble has in the past blighted cricket on the sub-continent with India forced to complete a Test match against Pakistan in an empty stadium in Kolkata in 1999 after police cleared the ground following disturbances.
